  • A Dutch octagonal wine table

Description

677 A Dutch octagonal wine table in pine, with moulded edge and painted with a still life of parrots eating fruit and feeding their young under a red tasselled drape, upon a birdcage swivel tripod base which is painted and grained to simulate rosewood. Painted furniture was produced in rural areas in many countries, but this example inspired by Dutch pictures, displays a higher degree of artistry than was usual. Note the wood graining to the underside of top. Mid 18th century. See: World Furniture, Noel Riley, page 123 for similar example.
